Entomologists fear urban beekeeping could be putting wild bees at risk

Some entomologists are sounding the alarm that native bees could be in danger of being wiped out, because of the popularity of urban beekeeping.

“The danger is that we’re probably losing species and don’t even know it,” says Gail MacInnis, a PhD entomology candidate at McGill University.  Something needs to be done, she says, to control the number of honeybees being raised.
